    I hope that is the case.

    As far as I know (which is very little at best) there has been no further communications. I suppose we'll just have to be patient a little longer.........

    Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I wonder if this could of been turned into homeowners insurance? Reason I ask, I was sued regarding a boating incident, but a part of my homeowners policy covered things similar to this, and my insurance company's lawyers handled everything for me.

    Hope everything works out!

    I have been following the thread and hoping to hear good news. I havent posted any responses to what is going on simply because I wanted to know more before doing so. I do know that when buying a horse its not like buying a car and the breaks go. We are talking about a animal with a mind. With all that she has as far as paper work copies of emails etc etc and bill of sale. Which Im sure the guys lawyer has not even seen yet is going to make this case go out the window. Contracts and emails of refusing to go see the horse is enough for any smart judge to look at the guy and say YOUR A IDIOT! He has no leg to stand on with this and like some have said anyone can sue anyone doesnt mean the person will win most cases are tossed when it comes to things like this. What exactly does he have other then the horse? She has copies of contract etc etc. He may have money and chances are he's going to waste it.
    I wish her luck and may the law be on her side.

    The thing that is really fishy about this is that the buyer continued to contact you after an attorney served a complaint on you. It appears he is trying to scare you into a settlement. Ordinarily, your contact would be through his attorney. If the attorney has knowledge of this harassment he might be liable for an ethics complaint to the state bar. You might check with your state bar association to see if the attorney has had complaints filed against him or action taken against him by the state bar. It's far out but the attorney could be part of the scam if there is one. It could be a scam but there are nut cases that will file a suit that has little or no chance of succeeding.

    Usually an attorney will warn a client to refrain from contact with the other party. If this guy is so far off center that he's asking for a huge settlement, it wouldn't come as a surprise that he's taken this upon himself despite the warning. On the other hand, as previously mentioned, perhaps there's a plan to split the pot. When I was facing a legal issue it proved advantageous to get a lawyer who carried more social status than the other party. It also is advantageous to go in to court dressed to the nines.

    Over the past year I have advertised a truck and a boat for sale on Craig's List. The same scam artist replies to every ad and the reply is almost identical to the one described here. He offers to buy the item at full price. He can't come and pick it up himself because he is away on business. He is buying it for his son etc. I replied that the item would only be sold for cash in a face to face transaction. I was surprised when he emailed back and tried to persuade me to accept a Pay Pal payment. I also received a telephone call along the same lines. When I asked the guy if he was calling from Nigeria he went into a profanity rage and even called back when I hung up on him. It was pretty funny but this isn't. I would report this guy to your state Justice Department's Division of Consumer Affairs. You can probably file a complaint online. They are required to investigate the complaint. The darker side of this is that many of these scams are raising money for terrorist groups such as the Taliban. You might check with the court clerk to make sure the complaint was even filed.

    Why wouldn't you accept a paypal payment? Pay Pal guarantees the funds that is why you use paypal. I would be pissed to if I was a legitimate buyer and you wouldn't take my money.
